thumbnail Hello,

The Seasiders captain is optimistic that they will carry the day by beating the People's Elephant in the final of the Federation Cup in Lagos

Warri Wolves captain, Azubuike Egwueke has boasted that Enyimba will fall when they meet in the final of the Federation Cup on Sunday at the Teslim Balogun Stadium.

This is the Seasiders' first final in any national cup competition, while the Aba Millionaires are playing their third final in five years.

Egwueke who is in the Super Eagles team that has qualified for the final game of the World Cup qualifiers told Goal that Enyimba cannot withstand the firepower that will hit them on Sunday.

"Enyimba are just living on their past glory. They are just a club in the Premier League. They will fall on Sunday because we are destined to take this trophy back to Delta State," Egwueke said.

"We are not afraid of the Aba side. They were good when they reigned [as league champions] but this is our time to take over from them. No doubt they have done well this season.

"They are a good side. But that is where the respect stops. When you look at the way we have played this season, you will realise that we have come a long way.

"This is our first finals and we intend to make use of this opportunity by writing our names in gold. Nobody gave us a chance to get to this stage.

"Four of their players will not be in action because they are cup tied and only Ike ThankGod will be missing from our team.

"We have proven that Warri Wolves should be respected. All I want for our supporters is to urge them to come to the stadium on Sunday and see the way Wolves will win the trophy in style," Egwueke said.

The women finals between Rivers Angels and Nasarawa Amazons will start by 1 pm before the game between Enyimba and Warri Wolves.

The winners of the trophy will take home N2million.
